This occupation involves carrying out skilled work, primarily using timber products, either on a construction site, or in a workshop, creating and installing building components. It is a core and options apprenticeship, with two pathways:
- Pathway 1:
A Site Carpenter will normally work on a building site, or in domestic and commercial premises, preparing and fixing building components, from the initial erection of a new building, through to the installation of all necessary fixtures and fittings, as well as a range of repair and maintenance activities.
- Pathway 2:
An Architectural Joiner will normally be employed in a workshop producing timber based building components and other architectural products, such as doors, windows, units and staircases, which are then transported to construction sites to be installed by site carpenters.

Apprentices will be assigned an assessor who will monitor their progress both in college and on site. Students are required to keep a portfolio of evidence generated in the workplace.
